New! July 2012 Ground to Sound Summer Camp


July 2012 Ground To Sound Stewardship and Science STEM Camp

Are you a 4th, 5th, or 6th grade graduate who wants to actively support your local environment while having something fun to do this summer? Then come explore with us at the Ground to Sound Stewardship Camp at the New Brightwater Environmental Center!
Sponsored by The Friends of the Hidden River and the Russell Family Foundation, this science based STEM camp uses a place-based experiential approach to learning. Campers will learn how to be stewards of the Sound through positive action for our local community.
Conduct field studies outside to learn how saving Puget Sound starts right here in our backyard! Join lab studies & a treatment plant tour to understand how systems can work for a more sustainable world. Like all scientists we’ll get dirty, playing with all kinds of equipment, simulations and materials to make learning fun. Best of all by the end of the week you’ll share your own ideas for saving Puget Sound!
What to expect: One full time staff member for every 10 students, with high school and adult support staff to maintain a 1:5 camper/staff ratio. Each small group of 5 will also have a junior high mentor for all activities. (25 campers total)
